Track Name: Adamant & Scissor Sharp
every petal of her sable is lost
steps of magenta
statues all shrouded in the difference
all their shadows a scar
alphabet of sunken stars

all the roses with their antlers
into the vanguard
amaranths like cinnabar

dandelions wrapped in rubies
singing against the tide
hiding ephemeral emerald webs in their wrinkles and crackles

adamant and scissor sharp
Track Name: Dim City Raincoat
charcoal essence in lilac and tap water streams
spring time scene
over serene
dim city raincoat

winter slowly returning to sleep

velveteen wall
indistinct scrawl
obscure the music of telephone calls
from whenever you fall
Track Name: Breathing In
breathing in deep under water
doorsteps carved into ice
underneath the rocks
gigantic leap of disorder
crackle and scrunching of glass
bell jar: gravitational mass
Track Name: Lunar Landscape
lunar landscape imploding
softly into limpid shades of dust
everywhere: nothingness superfluous
blackberry wing
tinted splinters singing anything
rippling liquid shifting thermal spring
glowing from the ivory light within
Track Name: The Wilderness of Friendliness
the wilderness of friendliness
the way it curls over indistinct words
imploding firebirds
fluttering fervor spectres
efervescent undynamic twirls
hidden in compliments
Track Name: Kites Know the Ways of the Wind
kites know the ways of the wind
quivering wimples
forging their shades paper thin
evening riddles
from the pale and slender day drifting gale
slither like sails
over the nightfall
slipping spirits into crystal ware so frail
as lace coverlets

kites know the ways of the wind
flimsy and wispy
then their shadows tacked too slim and lank
their minds are blank
kites know the ways of the wind
practically weightless
Track Name: Stepsister of Mother of Pearl
skating sideways in silence
round and round the mirror lake

crystals of snow obstructing the view
over the the underbrush and winter hills
and blackened mountains
skulking in the dew, long overdue
round and round, ongoing

swimming backwards covertly
round the lake and searching everywhere for
stepsister of mother of pearl
Track Name: Garlands
unbroken, crystalline and faint
dark, quite opaque
not awake
limpid in a different state
a hint of garden lights at stake
pomegranate bright
backlight in flight
passing though
curtains of shards
garlands of stars
Track Name: Sapphires
false indigo
inexplicit glow
sapphire stones
archipelago

suddenly their names will reverse into dreams
trading their shadows with statues asleep
forcing their way into the musical theme
Track Name: Afterglow
afterglow
reflected powder snow
projected embryo
sleeping in a shuttered stone
once again
sweeping through the windy glen
fragmented diadem gem
